Guttman Community College opened its doors to its inaugural class of students in August 2012, with ePortfolio as the centerpiece for student and institutional learning.
Guttman centers professional development on experiential and high-touch learning for faculty and staff.
During their Summer Bridge program, students at Guttman Community College are introduced to the concept of reflection as they begin to articulate and reflect on their learning experiences and who they are as learners and scholars.
Our ePortfolio platform, Digication, enhances student, faculty, and institutional learning. By situating student learning in a more visible context, ePortfolio connects pedagogy with outcomes assessment and professional development.
In this sequence of activities, students comment on visual art through the course ePortfolio and use each other’s ideas as a foundation for analysis in subsequent essays.
Evidence of integrated social pedagogy in a Composition Course.
Guttman faculty and staff engage in a continual process of “assessment for learning and improvement” conducting holistic assessment of student learning through their ePortfolios. With a widely established implementation of ePortfolio for Outcomes Assessment, our practices are transformative, providing opportunities for learning at the course, program, and institution level.
At the mid- and end-point of each semester, Guttman has two days in the academic calendar designated as Assessment Days. These days consist of a series of professional development activities focused on student learning and assessment.
